Teachers Rapped By Board HAROLD ATCHISON. Rotary dis- Rotary Club, with the club's charter trict governor, and Charles Willis, that was presented at the Arlington president of the Elk Grove Village Towers Hotel. Elk Grove Rotary Launched Several hundred Rotarians attended a dinner and charter night ceremonies in Arlington Heights Thursday for the newly organi/cd Elk Grove Village Rotary Club. Charles Willis, president of the new club, accepted the charter from Harold Atclnson, district governor from Golf, 111. Dr. Russell Dudman of the Chicago Rotary Club told the 35 charter members that the success of their club will depend on the activity of each of the members. Sponsor of the club was the Mount Prospect Rotary Club. William Simpson of the Wheeling Rotary Club played a key role in organizing the Elk Grove Village club. The evening was highlighted by the appearance of students from Rotary's foreign exchange program. Rotary Clubs, made-up of members of the business and professional community, dedicate themselves to service in the community Officers of the club include William Filly, vice president, Rev. Roger Pittelko, secretary, Michael Reese, treasurer, and Willis. Teens Go Out For Con-Con Fifty Elk Grove High School students will be out on the streets today encouraging people to vote tomorrow on the constitutional referendum. "It's a once In a lifetime thing," said Karen Evensen, one of the seniors who has been distributing literature on the constitutional changes proposed by the sixth Illinois Constitutional Convention. "Even if we can't vote, we can help," said Jan Walla, 17, The students and the others who are distributing the information are members of Richard Cherlco's social science classes. Although all of the students In the classes have been studying the new constitution, only about SO are actually involved in the distribution. MOST OF THEM are doing so because they approve of the new constitution and want It passed. The literature takes no sides, it presents a summary of the proposals and encourages people to cast their ballot. The students have been walking after school door-to-door, mostly in teams divided by precincts since last Tuesday in hopes of distributing olose to 10,000 fact bheets. Some of the students will be encouraging the community to vote "yts" on the now constitution. "The old constitution is too cumbersome. The now one allows for more flexibility," Karen said, Bob Thulin. another new constitution proponent, said. "Much of it has no affect on the times today, such as the part on the Columbia expedition." ALONG WITH Karen, Jan and Bob, Mark Pridgeon, Candy Casleman, and John Warring discussed the constitution and their reasons for backing it before heading out into the community last week. "Change doesn't occur by itself, you've got to push it," Karen said. Mark said he could understand some of the reasoning behind opposition to certain sections of the new constitution but urges people to vote in favor of the new one anyway. "With a document of this kind you're not going to have everyone getting everything they want. People shouldn't throw out everything just because of some of it." John, who agreed with him, said, "People with points against it should vote for it anyway because it's so much easier to revise." BOTH JOHN and Mark worked for Adlai Stevenson III, in November, helping him win in the race for U. S. senator. "It's one way of doing things within the system," Mark said. All of those in the discussion agreed that the voting age should be lowered, the death penalty be abolished, judges appointed and cumulative voting in multi-members districts continued. Voters will also decide on those four issues on Tuesday. Cherieo commented, "I'm proud that our school and its administrators are forward looking enough to allow us to become involved. This is one way to prove that young people can make a contribution, within the system, if given the opportunity."

The Hersey High School Band began rehearsing for the concert last week. The band will open the symphonic winds portion of the concert with the "Festive Overture" by Dimitri Schostakovich, followed with the "American Salute" by Morton Gould. For the conclusion of this portion, Fiedler has chosen "The Finale From The New World Symphony" by Anton Dvorak, He will also conduct Leroy Anderson's "Serenata" with the high school band. Concerning Fiedler's visit, Don Caneva, Hersey band director, said, "I was tremendously pleased and delighted when he said he would accept our invitation, after hearing a recent recording of the band. "When I first approached Fiedler, he didn't seem too interested," said Caneva, "but he asked me to send him pictures, recordings and other pertinent information about the band. His secretary later called me and said that he would be in Chicago at the end of November to conduct the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and would like to have an appointment with me at that time. During this meeting he accepted the engagement." Proceeds from the concert will be used to help cover the expense of the Hersey band's flight to Virginia Beach, Va., in June to compete in national band competition. Club To Get Charter The Elk Grove Village Rotary Club received its charter recently at an evening dinner in the Arlington Towers Hotel in Arlington Heights. Harold Atchinson, district governor, will present the charter to Charles Willis, president of the new club. Some of the comments printed in Friday's Herald from a statement released by School Dist. 59's Teachers' Council have been called "misrepresentation" by the board of education and administration. For the most part, however, several individual board members preferred not to comment, saying, in the words of Board Pres. Richard Hess, that it was a "too broad based letter " The Teachers' Council statement, attacked the board for being either misinformed, uninformed or deliberately misleading in reference to educational practices and dealing with teachers in the district. The Teachers Council recently initiated an investigation of the district by the Illinois Education Associaton (IKA). The IEA investigated a list of 40 to 50 charges made by the Teachers Council, but have not released results of the investigation. AS YET THE Teachers Council has refused to make public the charges. The Teachers Council statement, however, was related to those charges and the circumstances which have arisen because of them. One of the accusations was that some of the charges made by the Teachers Council had been corrected after the board of education received the itemized allegations. "That's not true. Many of the items Indicated were corrected before we received their letter," (presenting the all- gations) said Hess Apparently some of the items were in reference to situations during the first day of .school and were corrected as a matter of course by the administration. The allegations were not presented to the board until October. "Some of the allegations never existed," said Supt. James Erviti. ANOTHER COMMENT in the statement said, "The board of education also seems unable to comprehend the fact that our negotiators have reached complete accord on all contract items, and that the Teachers Council was, and still is, willing to ratify that agreement. All items have been initialed by Wesley Wildman, negotiations consultant engaged by the board of education, for negotiations." This is a "misrepresentation" according to Erviti. He said that in the past there has been disagreement after negotiation sessions as to what was agreed upon in the session. He said that the contract which the statement is apparently referring to, was one which both chief n e g o t i a t o r s initialed after reaching agreement on specific language. It was then to be presented to the represented groups, the board and teachers. The district is presently operating under a contract signed by the board in July but not approved by the teachers. The Teachers' Council letter also said, "In a recent statement, they (the board) have underlined the fact that they are completely out of touch with situations that actually exist in the schools." This was in reference to a statement released in Wednesday's Herald giving the board's reasons for not meeting with the IEA investigation team, saying that it was a union, had been involved in contract bargaining and would therefore be a biased investigation. AT'LEAST SEVERAL members of the board have been visiting the schools, on a frequent basis, with Sharrie Hil- debrandit visiting schools about three to Road Opening Soon All six lanes of the newly reconstructed Rte. 83 through Elk Grove Village may/ be opened this week, said Edward Welch, resident engineer. A portion of the northbound lane north of Landmeier Road was opened this week, he said. However, a delay may be encountered because of the railroad strike, he said. Additional work by railroad employes needs to be completed at a grade crossing north of Devon Avenue. in Person! four times a week since before she was elected in April. Judy Zancu, another board member, has also been known to visit the schools almost as often Both board members have offered to hold coffees with any parents or teachers who wished to disausb the district. Another accusation made by Thomas Lundeen, Teachers Council president, although not printed in the statement, was that the board had received a letter from the Teachers Council but had not responded The letter said, "The Teachers Council would be strongly opposed to the imposition of sanctions if we can take further steps toward solving the problems of our district. We feel that this can best be initiated by discussing the situations with the board of education, and we request a meeting with you at your earliest convenience for this purpose." The letter was mailed Friday, according to Lundeen, Wednesday he voiced strong disappointment that no reply had heen received and no action taken by the board at last Monday's board meeting. Hess reported that he received the letter Tuesday and that the board had "no intentions of ignoring it." A board executive session has been called for tonight to discuss the letter. Elk Grove Twp.
